One of IMG's many gems is Ben Nordberg, signed exclusively to the modeling and talent agency worldwide. Discovered where, but Instagram a few years ago, the handsome face immediately appeared on the industry's radar, appearing in a DKNY campaign opposite Cara Delevigne soon after his signing. From a few thousand followers to 110,000 today, it's no secret that he stands as a force to be reckoned with. That said, despite doing a damn good job, modeling isn't his only gig.

The multi-disciplinary talent boasts a supply of skills that exceeds limit. On the gram, we discover more of his passions, including intense shredding on his skateboard and impressive sketching whose minute details pack a major punch. Videographer Patrick Phillips took to his camera to document the triple threat merging his modeling and skating into a video that records the high-velocity sport into a graceful art with a classic New York City backdrop.
